Ownership is a word which implies that the employee puts himself into the shoes of the employer and then realize what he would be doing for the betterment of his business. This includes punctuality, regularity, dressing sense, and mannerism. It is an approach to life which turns you a professional and committed.

Self-motivation is infected a very positive quality which keeps the employee walking on his toes while at work he is already on his heels. It is a process of self-glorification when a man thinks himself to be the best among others irrespective of other factors. Self-motivation is the source of enthusiastic energy and fills us with more confidence.


An employee is the best Brand Ambassador for his organization and its products. He is supposed to be a man with a good social image and high reputation outside the organization, a man of ethics who can maintain the work-life balance. The employee should be the one who can rise to the occasion whenever challenges arise. Employees are supposed to be the team players. It is a quality when we can work together and share the credit of doing things.


The next most cardinal quality is intelligence- the ability to plan, organize, solve problems and to get the job done. Hallmark of intelligence is evident by immediate curiosity.
